Can't believe I forgot that one.

I've got a customer who owns 3 of those houses.

I've worked in them loads of times.

At the Shoeham St end of Midland Street,

there's a genall (where wheelie bin #8 is stood)

that runs between Midland St & Margaret St

My uncle David once chased a boy up it

'who'd been bullying my dad'

Uncle caught up with him in the genall and gave him a good thraping,

that was around eighty years ago. lol

I use to know Sonia who went to St Vincents school.

I'm not sure about the oldest ice cream company in Sheffield though.

On a will of my ancesters dated 1827 it states that a Ronksley [ ice cream maker] who lived in Trinity Street

rented one of his shops on Shalesmoor. :o

The oldest ice cream company in Sheffield?

Well the Cuneo family, the Italian Mafia and this web site (see link) all seem to think its Cuneos

Italian Ice Cream

Wow that's a fantastic one!

Thank you vox, I bet these houses looked spectacular when they were new with the church

on the end of the square.

Now that interesting street name "Baretta Street" DOES sound Italian!

Anyone any ideas of its origin?

I think it is also the name of a hand gun, - so that does sound like the Mafia :o

I did a bit on this, it possibly came from Andrew Barretta who had a shop on Page Hall Road, unless someone can come up with a better one.

I think Hugh W was looking for some info on the family.

That's what Peter Harvey says in his Street Names of Sheffield Book Neddy.

I couldn't find any reference to Barretta Street in census until the 1891,

so presumed he had something to do with the building of it,

His address in 1881 was 83 Page Hall Road which forms the corner of Barretta Street.

Went for a look round there today but no wooden sets left I'm afraid.

Where I use to live in 1966 there were wooden sets believe it or not.

Between St Ann's church and Netherthorpe school on Dover Street but the rest of the road were stone cobbles.

In damp weather they turned green and became very slippy. Our first foreign neigbours came to live opposite

the school in about 1964 and started digging them up for firewood [cheek].

We had some right potholes but it didn't seem to matter then as the road was fenced off and made no access

into Hoyle street because of the building of the new Netherthorpe road.

We were probably the last to move before the houses were demolished in 1966.

I can't imagine they dug the road up, most likely tarmaced over it.

So, Hillfoot School, now Netherthorpe School. Perhaps in the late 1800s all schools that were built in busy parts of Sheffield had them to keep traffic noise down.

Kay Place and Barber Crescent.

Both off Barber Road.

The third one, just a lane really, is not named - either on the road itself or on google maps.

It's shown on the 50's map on this site, but still un-named.

It must be called something because there are houses on it.

Maybe they have letters addressed to:

The White house,

Next door to the one with ivy on it,

Down the little cobbled lane,

Off Barber Road.

:)

Presumably the houses on the un-named lane are actually Barber Road.

The 2 houses which are shown numbered are 66 and 66a, while the houses on Barber Road either side of the lane are 64 and 68.

The houses on other streets nearby do not fit this numbering pattern.

Postmen seem to love addresses like this as it gives them an excuse to shove the mail through just anybodys letter box instead.
